.45 Brass small primer thorn.
« on: July 06, 2022, 06:53:46 pm »
Trying to load large pistol primers into the occasional small primer hole ".45 ACP" on Star Re-loaders is a PITA.       
Requiring dangerous disassembly to remove the crushed primer. I sort the cases to remove small primer cases but overlook about 1-2 per thousand cases sorted. Whoever thought to bring back small primers for .45 ACP needs His A.K. , Anyone else have this problem ?

My Rant For Today !

Good Shooting

Yes, it can be a complication. After tumbling or buying once-fired brass, I always take some time to cull the brass -- check for burrs or cracks, undesired brands such as A-Merc, and those with small primer pockets.
